Whitman School Celebrates IMPRESS Goodman Cup Competition


All year-round the four houses of the Martin J. Whitman School of Management’s Goodman IMPRESS program—Adams, Waverly, Harrison and Marshall— competed in the annual Goodman Cup Competition. This week the Whitman School crowned its 2015-2016 winner, Adams House. To celebrate the Whitman School hosted a brunch honoring students with the highest IMPRESS scores and a dinner honoring students of Adams House.

The Goodman IMPRESS program encourages students to gain critical career skills, such as leadership, confidence and resilience, by using competition and “gamification.” Students track their progress using a phone app and earn points by taking part in career-building activities outside of their classwork. Each point a student earns goes toward a personal IMPRESS score and toward a house total score. Every year, the house with the greatest points is awarded the Goodman Cup.
